Team Building Ideas to Motivate, Engage, and Encourage Your Team

June 16, 2011

Encouraging teamwork and camaraderie among your team is important whether you’re an official manager or an informal team leader. You need to keep your team motivated, engaged, and encouraged in order to meet your goals and produce results for your organization. I’ve put together 15 team building ideas that will help you! 

I recently shared these ideas in an episode of Recognition TV, our series of 15 minute live video broadcasts. You can watch the entire episode (it’s less than 20 minutes!) in our Recognition Resource Center

For all the ideas shared in today’s webisode, you should also visit our Recognition Resource Center. I’ve included links to the three different types of ideas below to make it easy for you to find the tips you’re looking for.
